There are some fine recipes here, I've tried the Beet salad (best I've had yet) and Pomegranate Molasses (very good and simple). I intend to try a few more before I give this cookbook away. Why am I giving it away? Many of the recipes are more complicated than I care to reproduce, call for ingredients or tools which it would be hard and expensive for me to find, or for ingredients I avoid eating (nightshade plants such as tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant).

Assumptions this author makes:
Everyone cooks on a gas stove
Everyone lives in a big city with a Middle Eastern market to hand
Everyone has a food processor

That being said, the reading experience was enjoyable, I learned about cooking techniques which I was not familiar with before, and an area of the world I will probably never have the luxury to visit. The only photographs are of women from the area. There is a nice map on the inside cover pages.

I put this book, which I have not yet seen, on my wish list because it was highly recommended by a blogger writing about foraging Malva sylvestris. The imaginative use of all greens in traditional Mediterranean cuisine is a topic worth writing about, before we in North America forget what the Italian and Moroccan grandmothers used to weed out of neighbourhood lawns and cook up for dinner.
